Season 5, Ep. 24
I want you to get these three letters in your head: QTR. What does this seemingly random acronym even mean?Note: Song intro/backing/outro is a song I've written titled, "Summer's End".
Find the Melody
Season 5, Ep. 23
As a species, we feed off of our surroundings. The uglier, more hateful, negative, etc. they are, whether internally or externally (or both); it affects all of us. Think of it this way. If a child grows up in a home where there is only loud arguing and violent outbursts, etc.; he/she will carry this with them throughout their days (and at some point, will more than likely, act out in a similar manner). Our nurturing/surroundings create our physical, mental and spiritual being. Note: Song intro/backing/outro is a song I've written titled, "Imagine a Day".
The Battle of You
Season 5, Ep. 22
Every day throughout our decision making, interactions, etc. there are two creatures battling inside you. Since I love sharks, I’ll pick them as the allusion for this battle. You can pick whatever creature you like (cats, dogs, wolves, etc.). Who wins? That depends. Who should win? That’s a non-starter. That answer should be obvious, but is very elusive to our species more often than not. So, let’s learn and discover a little about ourselves shall we?Note: Song intro/backing/outro is a song I've written titled, "Outside Looking In".
Season 1, Ep. 1
I approach teaching in the same manner that I conduct my training sessions for Ironman racing. I really don't have a direction. I have an end goal, but how I get there is anyone's guess:) In reality, we can plan all we want, and then . . . life lets you know that you control nothing; thereby, hold on for the ride.Note: The intro/outro/backing track is a composition of mine titled Riptide.
Season 1, Ep. 2
Overstimulation Theory reflects on how too much of anything is not necessarily a good thing. Just as I can become too attached to technology while training or racing, the same can be said for our children in the classroom. There's no doubt that technical advancements have numerous benefits. We just need to make sure that we don't allow technology to overshadow humanities need to truly connect, while learning to live, learn and love together.Note: The intro/outro/backing track is a composition of mine titled Propaganda.
No Return To Syndication
Season 1, Ep. 3
No Return to Syndication discusses how I view the time we have here on Earth, what we do with that time, and the time I'm honored to have with my students. It's imperative to make it count. We only get one shot.Note: The intro/outro/backing track is a composition of mine titled Dirt.
Season 1, Ep. 4
This "secret" has served me not only in endurance racing, but in the classroom as an educator, as well. By keeping four specific things in mind, I'm able to survive both 100's of miles during a race, or the 9 months in a typical school year.Note: The intro/outro/backing track is a composition of mine titled Whisper.
Season 1, Ep. 5
I'm not a big fan of hypotheticals. I'd rather just go experience or learn something to get the answers, rather than asking "what if" all my life, while never getting very far. If you're going to play the "what if" game, answer your question and be proactive in a solution or a desired outcome.Note: The intro/outro/backing track is a composition of mine titled Let It Ring.
Are You In?
Season 4, Ep. 16
It's important to remain aware of what type of motivators are running your day to day life. Are you being led by extrinsic motivations? Or, are your days focused on what intrinsically motivates you? While there is nothing adherently wrong with extrinsic motivations, be conscious of extrinsic overload.Note: The intro/outro/backing track is a composition of mine titled Depth.
